John Keith Irwin (May 21, 1929 - January 3, 2010) was an American sociologist who was known internationally as an expert on the American prison system. He published dozens of scholarly articles and seven books on the topic. In 1952, Irwin robbed a gas station and served a five year prison term for armed robbery in Soledad Prison. During his time in prison he earned 24 college credits through a university extension program. After his release from prison he received a B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles and then earned his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley. Irwin later became a professor at San Francisco State University, where he taught for 27 years until his retirement.show more
